NOGALES, Arizona — President Joe Biden’s narrative of his policies taking root across the nation encounters skepticism in Arizona. Despite Biden’s assertions of abundant jobs and cooling inflation, many Arizonans feel the economic impacts differently.
During his visit to Arizona, a state crucial for his 2020 win and a potential re-election strategy, Biden announced a plan to conserve a million acres near the Grand Canyon. Nevertheless, the landscape in Arizona is complex for Biden. Voters he needs to secure a re-election victory seem to have grown disenchanted with his presidency. An Emerson College poll shows that Trump leads Biden by 45% to 43% in Arizona. Additionally, only 38% of independent voters view Biden positively, as per the University of Arizona’s research.
Biden’s challenges in Arizona parallel his national dilemma. Despite positive economic markers like unemployment rates and job creation, many Americans aren’t feeling the effects. This sentiment is particularly visible in Arizona. While projects like infrastructure and green energy initiatives are in progress due to earlier bills passed in Biden’s term, Arizonans are still contending with congested roads, high temperatures, and expensive gas. The promises of economic transformation and renewal seem distant for many.
The dissatisfaction with Biden’s economic policies reaches across political spectrums. Carlos Ayala, an independent, finds himself inclined to vote for Trump due to employment issues and perceived favoritism for Mexican workers by local employers. Jorge Maldonado, the mayor of Nogales, voted for Biden in 2020 but now feels the federal government isn’t providing the necessary support.
While Bidenomics may be benefiting some areas, the sentiment of being trapped in a challenging housing market prevails. Maricopa County’s eviction rates are high, complicating the financial burdens of its residents.
